The Historical Library of the Harvey Cushing/John Hay Whitney Medical Library at Yale University is pleased to announce its eighth annual Ferenc Gyorgyey Research Travel Award for use of the Historical Library.
A blog post recently appeared (http://arc-medieval.blogspot.com/2015/03/getting-words-out-and-back-in-what-to.html, 1 March 2015) summarizing an effort to correct the identification of a medieval image that had become widely distributed on the Internet. The image, showing a miniature from a medieval manuscript held by the British Library (BL) and distributed by the BL's own "Images Online" site, was mislabeled by the BL as an image depicting victims of the Black Death (i.e., plague).

The implementation of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) procedures has transformed science, nature, and societies across the planet over the last half century. The vector for this transformation has been the “environmental impact statement,” a document, prepared by teams of scientists, that incorporates the likely social and/or ecological effects of development into the design stage of major projects. Through public comment periods and review hearings, EIA has also provided citizens with unprecedented access to science and bureaucracy.
